… should I be a DSLR owner? I love taking photos, love love love it. I have a Canon IXUS85 digital camera and an IPhone which I am always using to snapshot my life. I continuously use my IPhone apps to liven & jazz up my photos, I use Hipstamatic, Instagram and also Camera+ which are all fab.
There are so many amazing photography apps and gadgets available nowadays, there’s even a book sharing all the trade secrets … http://www.artofiphoneography.com/. BUT I do wonder, can anything really beat a proper SLR camera? The pictures are always so vivid and captivating and now I am a blogging addict and have started sharing my photos with you, I’d love to use a proper camera and start taking my photography a bit more seriously.
At this stage I’ve done a little research and am really loving the look of the new Nikon 1 J1 range … they offer the camera in loads of colours (which I LOVE, especially the pink and white versions) and it’s basically a combination of a compact camera and a SLR, which seems spot on for my needs!
I don’t know that much about the technology available, so would LOVE all of your advice on what you use, or what you’d recommend I should get (or should I stick with my apps)?
Right now though, I think a DSLR will be going on the top of my Christmas list :)
